Evian Christ & Torus

Price including €2,00 service costs


Evian Christ returns to Parallel, this time for a live concert of his imminently-released debut album, Revanchist (2023), exploring trance's latent potential to evoke, beyond euphoria, the fullest feeling of the sublime. Joining him for the occasion is Torus, a multidisciplinary artist pushing dance music to its very edge with a headier, maximalist approach to sound.

Launched in 2022 with a headline performance at Primavera’s L’Auditori, Revanchist: Live is an expanded A/V presentation of the album's predominant musical and visual themes. Designed in collaboration with lighting designer Emmanuel Biard, the project is the result of a four-year R&D process culminating in the Longinus array — a bespoke, heat compressed 12m fresnel screen comprising twenty-four high power LED projectors with a custom mounting system and optical grade bounce mirrors. The lighting effect produced is breathtaking, and simply must be seen to be believed.

Strobe warning: Evian Christ’s performance — as per the artist's unconditional technical specification — will be supported by upwards of 15kw of unrelenting xenon strobe lighting and arena-grade smoke machines. As such, this show may not be safe for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

Evian Christ

Evian Christ (b. Joshua Leary) is an Ellesmere Port-based musician, producer and music programmer signed to Warp. Initially finding recognition for his production contributions to Billboard-topping albums by Kanye West and Travis Scott, and subsequently as the founder of the enduringly influential TranceParty event series, Christ’s recent years have seen him lead an idiosyncratic range of projects that enquire into the legacy of trance in contemporary cultural life.


Torus is an alias of Joeri Woudstra, a multidisciplinary artist based in The Hague. In the club, he is pushing dance music to its very edge. Where his recent output has been distinctly melancholic and ambient, his DJing renders a headier, maximalist approach. Cleanly dissecting scenes and reconstructing them into reimagined contexts to radically alter their social function. His technical approach offers a framework in which to explore the emotional and personal aspects of sound intuitively.

Since debuting in 2012, the RMBA Tokyo graduate has refined his artistry through impressive and varied roles such as soundtracking Telfar’s Ugg collaboration, presenting a piece with Kate Cooper in the New Museum in New York, and his most recent A/V project ‘These Cars Do Not Exist’ in collaboration with Mark Prendergast, exhibited in both art and club contexts such Institut fuer Zukunft online art platform Balance Festival, and Fiber, Amsterdam.


Please familiarise yourself with the House Rules prior to arrival to help keep Parallel a safe space where people feel free to be their entire selves.
